Thomas Houseago

Photo: Thomas Houseago

Thomas Houseago is widely identified with creating large scale, and at times monumental, sculptures that are at once physical and tactile, powerful and vulnerable. Drawing upon and deftly subverting classical sources, the artist creates forms that hover between old and new worlds. Using a wide range of mediums, including traditional, low-grade materials such as plaster, hemp, graphite, wood and iron rebar, as well as cast aluminum and bronze, Houseago’s sculptures constantly acknowledge their creation as he fully embraces the process of sculpting by leaving visible the actions and structural components. Striving to impart a sense of energy and movement to his figures – whether standing with feet spread wide, striding forward, or lying supine on the gallery floor – Houseago’s sculptures are infused with a sense of urgency, dynamism, vulnerability and brute physicality.

While continuing to draw inspiration from the human body, Houseago’s recent work leans towards creating a dialogue around the complexity of abstraction and figuration. A decisive shift took place with his exhibition at Hauser & Wirth, ‘Moun Room,’ 2014, where a concentric, cubic structure of abstract geometric forms mimicking lunar phases or musical phrases, placed the viewer in a provocative and immersive sculptural, architectural environment. Such monumental works create space for communal explorations into notions of positive and negative space, inside and outside, shadow and light, the participation of the viewer and their body is an integral part of the sculpture. ‘Sculpture is thought in action,’ Houseago has said, ‘I wanted to make a space that is beautiful, that is free, that is open.’

Layered and sculptural in their own right, Thomas Houseago’s drawings and paintings further map traces of a work’s journey from concept to form and are deeply steeped in a European art historical context while also revealing the interrelated influences of modernism, African, pre-Columbian, and Pacific tribal art as well as sci-fi and popular culture characters. Subverting and combining this broad range of references, his paintings explore shifts between the mental and the physical through their impulsive, densely colored and often geometric style. Houseago attacks his paintings with a sculptor’s particular energy and vernacular.

Born in Leeds, England, Houseago’s career has taken him from the UK to the Netherlands, to Belgium and finally to the United States, where he currently lives and works in Los Angeles.
